Vanguard Transfers 30 Employees to St. Louis

Thirty employees of Tulsa-based Vanguard Car Rental are moving to the St. Louis offices of parent company Enterprise Rent-A-Car, company executives report, according to Tulsa World.

Enterprise officials said the transfers affect 5.5 percent of the 544 Vanguard employees based at Cherokee Industrial Park.

"Thirty people have been offered jobs in St. Louis," Enterprise spokeswoman Laura Bryant said in a telephone interview. "Jobs also have been transferred from St. Louis to Tulsa. Operations in Tulsa are still very, very significant. We're in the middle of a methodical, well-thought-out integration process."

When the merger was announced last March, Vanguard had 10,000 employees, 659 of them in Tulsa. Enterprise had 64,500 employees, about 100 in Tulsa.

Tulsa World reports that over the past year, contrary to the expectations of company executives, the merger has resulted in a 17.4 percent decrease in Vanguard jobs in Tulsa.
